A Peek Inside The Home Of “Mad Men” Costume Designer Janie Bryant
Janie Bryant has a tough job. For the past several years, she’s worked tirelessly as “Mad Men”‘s costume designer, giving the ad execs, wives and mistresses of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (and now Holloway) the perfect looks to represent their characters and the different eras of the show. That means switching from the remnants of ’50s fashion in “Mad Men”‘s early seasons to its latest incarnation — the beginnings of the horrible synthetic fabric and polyester pantsuits of the late ’60s and early ’70s. From Don Draper’s perfectly cut gray wool suits or Joan Holloway’s cleavage-bearing biz wear, Bryant’s contributions as costume designer are what make the show feel so authentic.
With taste that impeccable, you just know Bryant and her husband Peter must live in one heck of a great house. And they do. Elle Decor recently caught up with the couple and their poodle Lucie, for a quick but sweet tour of their Los Angeles home. You should definitely check out the whole thing, but in the meantime, we’ve picked a few of our favorite rooms after the jump.
